Kent County Council has appointed grant makers Kent Community Foundation to administer crucial new funding for families in Kent and Medway

Grants will be available from two Funds; The Hardship Fund will help families directly and The Resilience Fund will support organisations working with people and families in financial difficulty.
The Hardship Fund
The Hardship Fund is open now and will support families who are struggling financially by providing cash grants of up to 500 to help them either buy food or essential items for the home, or to help pay bills (excluding council tax/rent arrears).
To apply for a grant, professionals (including social workers, GPs or teachers) who know the struggling family should email paul@kentcf.org.uk explaining their need.
The Resilience Fund
The Resilience Fund will open on 21 September 2020 to provide grants of up to 10,000 to organisations with an annual income of up to 200,000 who are supporting families in financial difficulties, with emphasis to support those needing food or debt advice. The intention of the Fund is to financially support those organisations currently seeing an increase in demand or anticipating an increase in demand this autumn.

Josephine McCartney, Chief Executive, Kent Community Foundation, said, We are delighted that Kent County Council has asked Kent Community Foundation to administer the distribution of this vital funding which will help struggling families across Kent and Medway. The application process for both Funds is not complicated, as we want to ensure the money reaches those who need it, as quickly as possible.
